Feature Spotlight: Video Link Previews
Thursday, Feb 19th, 2015
Mixmax is a communications platform that brings professional communication & email into the 21st century.
Ever wish you could express the awesome-ness of an internet video you’re sending to someone over email before they’ve viewed it? Now you can, instantly with Mixmax Link Previews for videos.
Link previews enable you to create beautiful visual previews in place of a typical un-styled link.
Mixmax is integrated with several video websites such as YouTube and Vimeo. By pasting a link to a Vimeo or YouTube video in your email, an enhanced preview will appear in place of the link. Recipients will be able to see an image preview of the video, title, and video location. If the recipient opens your email in Gmail, they’ll even be able to view the YouTube video directly in their email!
If you’d like to remove the enhanced preview, just use your browser’s Undo command by hitting
cmd+z (on Mac), or by going to ‘Edit’ > ‘Undo’ in Chrome.
Note that link previews are only generated when links are entered on a new line, any links you enter in a paragraph won’t create previews.
When you send those previews to someone, they’ll be able to click on them like any other link and automatically be taken to that web page or image.
